  1. The Legend of Spyro: The Eternal Night is a gift that keeps giving until completion.
  2. An incredibly fun, beautiful 2D action title that's deep and accessible at the same time. While the Spyro name might make some wary, anyone who misses this one is really missing out.
  3. While the GBA version of this game isn't quite on par with it's siblings on the Wii, DS and PS2, it's still a simple and enjoyable game from start to finish.
  4. Spyro fans (I know you're out there) shouldn't hesitate to pick the game up. Additionally, the game would be good for younger action-gamers, as the easy mode is well thought out; enemies have less endurance and punch, and even fewer techniques.

    This game was really fun, from start to finish. It has incredible depth for a handheld game, and it even has replay value.

    I got this game based on the the recommendation from another site. Turns out it was spot on: this is a well-designed, great looking I got this game based on the the recommendation from another site. Turns out it was spot on: this is a well-designed, great looking sidescrolling action platformer that could be straight from the 16-bit golden age. It has nothing to do with the mediocre "3D" DS version. Unexpectedly, one more GBA purchase just when I thought that chapter was closed. Full Review »

    A good game which combines platforming and action adventure. A lot better than the previous spyro game on the GBA.
